Reopening Information

As of June 14, 2021, more than 80% of eligible Vermonters have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and Governor Phil Scott has authorized the move to Step 4 of the Vermont Forward Plan, lifting business, gathering, and travel related restrictions, nearly two weeks ahead of schedule.

The Vermont Department of Libraries (VTLIB) recommends that your Board of Trustees approve a written plan for any reopening plan, and, where appropriate, have that plan vetted by your local municipality.

Each Vermont public library has the power to make decisions on if and how to provide services under the advisement of the library board and stakeholders such as the municipality and community leaders (if applicable). Note: All libraries must continue to adhere to the orders put forth by the Governor of Vermont.
